Abstract: The energy sector is an example of an unusual branch of the economy whose success largely depends on the amount of energy carriers owned by a given country. Paying attention to Poland, it should be noted that next to hard coal, which is the largest quantity of raw material, the role of oil and natural gas is steadily increasing. Energy security gives the opportunity for development in individual countries only if it can function and satisfy basic goods that allow economic prosperity. These goods include, but are not limited to, energy resources, which may determine the prosperity of individual economic sectors. In turn, energy carriers along with other raw materials decide about the level of fuel security of the country, and thus affect the level of energy security. However, due to the existing threats to this sector, one of the important roles is played by the Police, which counteracts all criminogenic phenomena that deplete the economic benefits for the state from the fuel sector. The article is an interesting supplement to the issues raised in the journal, because it draws attention to a special problem that should be tackled not only on a national, but also international scale, so the text seems to be important from the perspective of the topics discussed. In addition, the issues raised, which are not so often discussed in the scientific literature, constitute an interesting supplement in the field of matter.
